January 23, 2011

We’ve been vacationing in wonderful South Padre Island, TX and just loving this weather! You know I’m not missing the snow…for sure!

Wherever we go, I find and create art.  We’ve come to SPI for a few years now, where there is a great group of local artists.

Here, I’ve been working on a corporate re-purposing project.  I look forward to telling you more about it, but that information will have to wait until I’m finished. I can tell you, mixing alternative materials with fiber is a blast! It’s a whole ‘nother world to work with!

Cultural Cloth is doing well with four upcoming Cultural Cloth: Exploring and Expressing Our Cultural Histories workshops. Three of the dates are listed below, with the fourth to be added very soon. I hope you can join us for this fun, artistic exploration of America’s many cultures.

February 15, 2011: I’ll be at South Padre Island Artspace from 10 – 4 pm. I’m so excited to share this workshop with so many of my Winter Texan pals. Contact

March 26, 2011: Central Carolina Community College, Pittsboro, NC will be hosting Cultural Cloth. Teachers take note: This class qualifies for CEU’s. Join us as we combine art and the many stories of how we came to be American in this unique workshop. Call 919-545-8044 for registration information.

October 30 – November 6, 2011: Join me for Creative Cruisin’ with Cultural Cloth as we sail the Southern Caribbean aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas. Contact for further information. Book by February 15, 2011 and receive a $50 discount.

Lastly, be sure to check out the current call from PAQA-South for ARTQUILTSmovements. The deadline is March 19, 2011. Visit for an entry form and further information. Past exhibits from PAQA-South were visited by thousands in the Raleigh – Durham – Cary, NC area.

I’ll be checking back soon with images of current work.  Until then, enjoy wherever you are!
